    Blind Willie McTell indicated that Blake's real name was Arthur Phelps, but later research has shown this is unlikely to be correct. In a group of researchers led by Alex van der Tuuk published various documents regarding Blake's life and death in the journal Blues & Rhythm.

    Blind Blake is a figure of enormous importance in American music. Not only was he one of the greatest blues guitarists of all-time, Blake seems to have been the primary developer of "finger-style" ragtime on the guitar, the six-string equivalent to playing ragtime on the piano. Blake mastered this form so completely that few, if any, guitarists who have learned to play in this style since.

    Blind Blake, aka, Blind Arthur Blake, remains an enigma. It is agreed that he was an exceptionally talented, unique, musician, but very little is known about his life before he started recording in Chicago, or how he earned his living before then, and nothing at all seems to be known about his life after his last recording in /5(21).

    These 52 tracks offer a very good insight into early country blues. Almost every major blues artist from the s and 30s is represented, among them legendary figures such as Tampa Red, Robert Johnson, Charley Patton, Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Leroy Carr, 'Sleepy' John Estes, Lonnie Johnson and the great Son House, and this is definitely the place to go if you want just a 5/5(5).
